Lovely Ladies Looking Chic in today’s Espresso Shot Of News…

The Best Dressed Are…

1>> Michelle Williams wore a divine sparkly cocktail dress from Azzaro’s spring/summer 2010 collection. Love the black bow waist, side cut-outs and ruffle skirt! Too sweet! I just LOVE this dress!

2>> To her The Tourist world premiere in New York, Angelina Jolie looked a picture of perfection in an Atelier Versace gown. The long ivory gown is elegant and sophisticated yet irrevocably sexy with its thigh-high slit and deep V neckline.

3>> While in Sydney to promote Love & Other Drugs, Anne Hathaway chose a Christopher Kane dress from his Resort 2011 collection. Nipped in at the waist, this mini dress is flattering yet fun with such an eye-catching beautiful print.

4>> Carla Bruni wore a scallop-edged, tailored dress and jacket by Christian Dior in the must luscious shade.   Enough said.

5>> The supermodel that is Naomi Campbell, stepped out in an Alexander McQueen Couture dress. As always, Campbell looked fierce, fresh and indescribably beautiful.

6>> Already turning heads on the red carpet for her stylish choices, Elle Fanning (little sister of Dakota) looked a perfectly polished young lady in a Valentino Couture dress. Taken from the autumn/winter 2010 collection, the bow, long sleeves and cute neckline make this dress perfect for the young actress.  

7>> The ever stylish, Carey Mulligan, chose to look amazing in a striking scarlet Prabal Gurung spring/summer 2010 dress.

8>> In a custom-made Prada dress, Eva Mendes looked cute as a button! The dress was inspired by the autumn/winter 2010-11 collection.

9>> Katy Perry stepped out in a purple lace dress from Zuhair Murad’s autumn/winter 2010-11 collection.

10>> And finally, Gwen Stefani’s canary yellow Prada dress stole my heart! The floor-length gown with black belt is exquisite! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

In such a week full of beautiful ladies & labels, who is your best dressed? xx
